Here at Family & Sedation Dentistry in San Dimas, CA, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible dental care and helping our patients restore their dental health and the perfection of their smiles. Since 1986, Dr. Marteney has placed dental implants, mini implants, and traditional dentures in combination with implants to replace broken or missing teeth.
The dental implant abutment and crowns are custom made replacement teeth, designed to match the color and shape of the original tooth. In this manner, the implant completely replaces the missing or severely damaged tooth, and no one is the wiser. Made with a very small titanium post and covered with a natural appearing dental composite material, dental implants are often preferred by patients because they are cared for in the same way as a natural tooth. In other words, there are no problems with denture slippage, or the inconvenience of special care products to contend with.
Not all dental implants are created for the same purpose, there are different implants for different purposes. As mentioned, all implants function as a post, but the thickness of the post determines its purpose. Those dental implants with wider posts are used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants with thinner posts are most commonly used to stabilize conventional dentures and partials, effectively using both types of dental implants can be in the best interest of the patient’s oral health and the appearance of their teeth.
Besides simply restoring your smile, Dr. Marteney’s dental implants are crucial for preventing future bone deterioration , enlarging maxillary sinus issues and ensuring the integrity of the facial structure.
